Dialogic Feminist Gatherings (DFG) are defined as egalitarian dialogues focused on transforming the language of desire to create possibilities for women who want to question the desires imposed by patriarchal societies by orienting them towards non-violent relationships (Puigvert, 2016).
DFG are based on feminist contributions, particularly those aimed at overcoming gender-based violence (GBV), as well as scientifically validated contributions to overcoming violence, scientifically contrasted analyses on the hegemonic socialisation of desire towards violent men in both sporadic and stable relationships, scientifically validated contributions regarding programmes that have shown success in preventive socialisation and egalitarian dialogue promoted by non-hierarchical people (Puigvert, 2016).
Participating in DFGs prevents adolescents from different social and educational contexts from experiencing GBV. For women who have already experienced a violent same-sex relationship, DFGs give them the tools to identify and not choose a violent same-sex relationship again.
